The model - the model was released in Hong Kong on 5th May 2005. Quantities became available in the UK during July 2005. The box end labels this model as being numbered CM059, which I assume denotes it being the 59th licensed Citybus Model. The base of the box confirms Corgi's details and their product code of OM44402.

The bus - 2103 entered service with Citybus on 2nd January 1998. Citybus unveiled their 'Year of the Rooster' livery on 1st February 2005 and a selection of photographs taken on the day can be found on the following Xtra page of the site
